So after getting binned from Leapforce I had no joy getting anything else, the date I was meant to be starting the Lionbridge exam came and went and when I contacted them they had changed their minds so that was that! With the change of circumstances here and the vastly reduced available time anyway I decided to put my earning mission on the back burner for a while so from April-September my total earnings (including the last pay from LF which was about half it!) was a miserable £461.53 (£423.53 cash/£38 vouchers).

Anyway we had a great, busy summer and it was nice to not have to think about when I was going to fit my work in but once we got to September I decided it was time to try and find some time again. I now have 2 of my 3 kids home full time only seem to manage around an hour and a half per day but I do what I can with it. I got lucky with getting another social media job (Lionbridge this time, thru workmarket) so have been getting into the rythm of doing that each day, plus odds and ends from branded surveys, prolific and have reinstalled Qmee. Swagbucks disabled my account some months ago completely out of the blue and wouldnt tell me why so unfortunately no more amazon vouchers from that direction which is a pain. I don't have a goal as such just to make what I can with the time I can manage. Applied for a proof reading job too but not holding my breath on that one!
Are you any good at writing content at all?

I usually need a handful of stuff doing each month and pay a variety of people and would be happy to include you if it would help.

I know you said £461 is miserable but it’s still £461! Which is a nice amount of money. Not what you aimed for but try not to let that get you down.

I’ve just read through this thread and have found your online money making journey really interesting. Sounds like you’re super organised which is a great thing.

It’s a shame Swagbucks isn’t working for you anymore. You mentioned your husband had an account, can you still use his? Although how people make so much from swagbucks I don’t know! I think I got about £5 before I gave up!

I really hope you find something else that fits in nicely with your day to day life. You sound like a great mum who’s rolling her sleeves up and cracking on. All the best.

Ooo what kind of content? I don't know if I'm good or not but very happy to give it a go, thank you!

That's so nice of you to say, thank you. With swags I think it's run it's course tbh, I wasn't impressed with alot of the recent changes anyway so it was probably time to leave they just took the decision out of my hands.

Total for 2018: £2504.19 (£2347.05 cash, £157.14 vouchers).

Summary: Once again thought I'd share this as it might be of interest to someone other than myself. Annual breakdown of where my earnings came from this year:

Lionbridge - £712.42
Leapforce - £1018.78
Swagbucks - £147.14
Qmee - £149.55
Pinecone - £21
Prolific academies - £79.07
Appen - £42.36
Branded surveys - £100.32
Red bubble £0.66 (new venture just started)
Other/misc - £232.89

Given I barely did anything May-August this could have been worse really. My focus this year is Lionbridge for as long as that lasts and Red bubble as I think it has potential.

Crikey you've been doing some sterling work with Leapforce and Lionbridge!! Hope that keeps up for you!

I also hope your RedBubble venture works out well for you!

It's a site where you upload your art/designs and people can buy them on merchandise, they do all the order fufilment and you get a cut of the profit. I'm far from an artist but decided to dabble and have sold a load of stickers already which is a start!

That is a great start! Are you looking to carry the same designs onto other products or are you looking to make new, bespoke designs for each item?

Now have a Son in Law, and have become the 'dreaded' Mother in Law. Many congratulations to Hazel and Matt who got married on 10th August, at the Centre for Alternative Technology, Machynlleth, North Wales. It was a fab weekend away and the most unconventional but personal wedding ever!

Gah, buying more domain names again!

Just to say thanks for using my Western Union/10.00 Gift Card link :)

Messing around with Wordpress Themes FAR too late on a Sunday night!
I knew staying away from domains wouldn't last forever - just bought another one (or two)! :D
